Central Bank Digital Currencies and Their Impact on the Future of Money


As the Global Crypto Leader at PwC, the Chairman of the FinTech Association of Hong Kong, and an adjunct associate professor teaching the first fintech university course in Asia, Henri Arslanian spends a lot of time working with policymakers, financial institutions, central banks, and regulators on the impact of cryptocurrencies and CBDCs on the future of finance and money.

In this “fireside chat,” Henri and Chainalysis Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer Jonathan Levin discuss not only some of the latest global CBDC developments, from China’s digital Yuan and the U.S. Digital Dollar, to the impact of Libra and stable coins on the existing financial ecosystem and their impact on driving increased mainstream adoption of crypto.
